^ That's got to be bright
Thanks for the numbers. Please list TV, meter, software (Calman Basic?) and luminance fL your calibration get's you to.
Also, dynamic contrast is enabled. Please explain why.
I calibrate without dynamic on then turn it on after calibration is complete, I like to picture better with it on its just a personal preference. I used Calman control 5 40 FL was the goal the meter was a C3
It was a source problem thanks - now then I just had a link problem changing channels on fios - the screen got purple had to cycle AV receiver - anyone else ever had an issue like this? It then just did it again not even changing the channel - I wonder if the HDMI cable I ha\ve may be the issue? Edited by bturkel - 6/22/13 at 3:01pm
Does anyone have calibration recommendations for ps3 gaming?
Something I was thinking about through this TV:
Can I ask anyone in the know;
It appears the F8500 works best in a lag sense when the HDMI input is renamed to "PC"
Once in this mode, many things are disabled. The only options in the menu are:
Color Tone (Default: Standard)
Considering the requirement is to cal for gaming which is not Rec709, would you calibrate to sRGB?
Is it possible (or even worth while) calibrating WB using 0-255 range? If so, how would one setup the cal software?
Any other tips for calibrating the other menu options would be fantastic Edited by pieandchips - 6/22/13 at 6:12pm
Color tone Warm2/ Warm2/ Warm2/ Warm2
Digital clean Off/ Off/ Off/ Off
MPEG noise Off/ Off/ Off/ Off

These are interesting and thanks for posting. I'm wondering if Kevin is the first calibrator to leave the color space on Auto? It seems all the other reports I recall had the color space set to 'Custom'. I'm also curious what the default Cal Day and Cal Night modes look like. Generally each mode has its own 'look', even uncalibrated Cal modes....at least on displays I've owned.
Couldn't agree more Dave. I just posted that I watched a brief bit of the hockey playoff game on NBC last night. I've never seen whites that were so pure and totally unimpaired by DSE or ABL. As the camera panned, there was no evidence, none, of DSE. As great as my picture is on my Sharp Elite, even it shows some tell-tale signs of DSE during a demanding scene like a pan during a hockey game.
I was really mesmerized by how good it looked.
Dave, did Kevin also use 'Auto' for your color space during calibration? Looking and trying the settings that ola posted, it shows you how individual each display really is. I knew off the bat that those settings would make my picture a bit too red. When I tried it, that's just what I got, a picture that was too red.
Ken: I'm waiting for VE to send me the calibration report once Kevin provides it to VE. My 64" F8500 Samsung was calibrated at the VE store before delivering to my home, so I wasn't able to ask any questions during his calibration.
So are you happy with your best buy calibration? Still not sure if I should take the free one for being a silver member. Most people say they do more harm than good, and that its rare that they actually do a good job.
